This is only a tiny update on the Winter cabin. :o))
I haven't had broadband access for 3 weeks (just my phone), and I'm only just back online with my laptop, so I still have to reply to all your wonderful comments!! :o)))
I have now fitted and hung the little curtains, I didn’t bother with a frilly pelmet in the end, it would have overwhelmed the tiny window, so I’ve left them as they are. I have a commission to be added to the cabin, once it arrives I can come back to it and work on it.
The Christmas tree I made is for another project, I will make more realistic outdoor trees for this project I think. :o)
I'm really pleased that I can see the curtains from the outside.
You can see them from the front too! lol
They took a while to fit and they weren't that easy to do. I didn't fit them in the usual way (no brackets etc.,), so it was a case of making sure they were straight and all the same level!
It needs door furnishings etc., and some work on the back of the cabin. I will leave these things till I move or when I can work in my Summer House. ;o)
I have bought the bedside light (the card is not staying! lol) and will fit that once I have the beside cabinet! ;o)
I am undecided whether to buy any of the furniture, I need one item though, the bed because that needs to be dressed and it will take time to do. :o) I really am not keen to buy mini’s at the moment (only OOAK’s or mini’s I think I might not see again) because of having to pack them up when I move house.
I have worked out when I move I will be between 26 and 28 miles from my nearest HobbyCraft, Wickes, The Range and B&Q, all places I buy supplies. So, I’m going to stock up on things I know I will need in the interim and not just from these suppliers. ;o)
So, I am devising a plan of what projects I will be working on before and just after I move and I plan on adding to the Winter Cabin. It is for Father Christmas, in the film he has a sleigh and a caravan…which he takes on holiday. There is also one other kit for a different project that I plan to buy, that I can work on whilst I am waiting for my real work space to be sorted out. ;o)
My late Spring/Summer cabin project...
Whilst I am waiting then for supplies to arrive for both cabins, I am now starting work on my other cabin. This one will mimic my real life work room and my cabin to be (when I move). I plan on decorating it as similar to the real one as I can, but I will change some things for ease! Lol :oP
I'm going to do a kit bash on it and change some things that I don't like, some subtle, some not so.
One change...you'll have to see how...
I plan to change and embellish these. They are not realistic enough for me.
My real cabin will be in the main Buttemilk with Aqua windows, doors etc. However, finding that exact colour in either a match pot or Acrylic was a challenge, so I will mix my own from the ones I have bought.
